LAFC vs Orange County SC Highlights
In their highest scoring match since February 19 against the New York Red Bulls, the LAFC vs Orange County SC matchup for the third round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup ended in 5-1 win for the Black & Gold. In what was a total domination performance, two players on the Los Angeles Football Club were able to score a brace.
Most of the LAFC vs Orange County SC highlights were heavily one-sided, and you can easily guess which side that is. For the sake of not sounding too biased, OCSC launched a clean and precise long shot early on in the 8th minute of the match which almost went past the hands of LAFC’s senior goalkeeper John McCarthy. And that was all she wrote for OCSC in the first half.
Fast forward several minutes and Danny Musovski started things off for LAFC at the 12 minute mark on a low shot past Orange County SC goalkeeper Patrick Rakovsky. Cristian Arango followed up in the 34th minute after a well placed cross and finished with a touch up shot to bring the score up to 2-0.
Just nine minutes later and seconds before the end of the first half, Chicho secured his brace off of a back heel pass for an easy tap in to score his fourth goal of the season and his fourth goal in the past three matches. Seemed like OCSC desperately needed the break to sort things out.
LAFC kept dominating through the second half with two more goals thanks to Cal Jennings who scored in the 68th minute off of a pass from Franco Escobar, and Danny Musovski who secured his own brace in the 71’ that brought the game up to 5-0. Unfortunately LAFC couldn’t hold the shutout as OCSC’s Erick Torres was able to score two minutes after Musovski just so they can be included in the reel of LAFC vs Orange County SC highlights.
As a result of his victory, LAFC advances to the Round 4 of the 2022 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. With three days rest, they will play again this weekend against FC Cincinnati on the road at TQL Stadium on April 24.
